|I for one am hoping for good weather on Sunday. Firstly, it is the first Sunday Breakfast meet of the year at Samphire Hoe. A new venture for the Kent Centre of the Suzuki Owners Club, and a new venue.|
The cafe is more of a giant tea-bar and so there is very little cover. There are loads of picnic tables to sit at though!
Secondly, it is the Whitstable Easter Egg Run. I usually go but after a few years of burning the clutch out on the mass ride out, I tend to go and dump the eggs with the organisers and watch the column leaving. Then go home. Might do the same depending on weather!
As both are the same day we have a cunning plan (© Baldrick) to get from one to the other.
The Samphire Hoe meeting is 10am and after a chinwag, we'll have a ride round to Folkestone Harbour and check out the seafood stalls before going to the meeting place for the run to Whitstable. It makes two events for the Centre diary.
Fingers crossed for sunny or at least dry weather.

Things are building up for a first trip to Wembley, where 80000 plus will make their way to the new stadium, many for the first time.
Use public transport we are told. "Cut the carbon footprint". So why then does TfL make it difficult by having a part suspension of the Jubilee Line?
As usual the arse and the elbow have no idea.
Integrated transport policy for London. Rubbish.

The gardens and castle only opened the day before went for our regular look to see what was happening in the garden. It was quieter than expected and we took the car rather than the bike (no MoT!). Excellent weather in the end!
Somehow I managed to take 161 pics on the day! Most of them aren't very good and will never see the light of day but there were a few decent ones. Exactly what digital cameras bring to the world.
I tried the above to see what sepia looked like. I took one in colour as well and decided this one looked a bit better.
Above are the oast houses right by the entrance in front of the castle main entrance. This set are quite spectacular as they have both the more common round oast and the square ones. In its heyday the farm must have provided tons and tons of malt from these oasts.
